Kim Deal (born June 10, 1961 as Kimberly Ann Deal) is an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, and bassist. Deal first joined the Pixies in January 1985 as the band's bassist, adopting the stage name Mrs. John Murphy (after the name of her husband at the time) for the band's releases Come on Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa. After Doolittle and the Pixies' resulting hiatus, she formed The Breeders, who soon released their debut album Pod. After the Pixies reconvened, her influence in the band lessened and she felt increasingly sidelined by the band's frontman, Black Francis; this led to the Pixies' breakup in late 1992 and early 1993.

Biography

Youth

Kimberly Deal was born in Dayton, Ohio on 10 June 1961.[1] She and her identical twin sister Kelley were introduced to music at a young age; the two sang to a "two-track, quarter-inch, tape" when they were "four or five" years old. When Deal was 11, she learned Roger Miller's "King of the Road" on the acoustic guitar.[2] In high school, at Wayne High School, Huber Heights, Ohio, she was a cheerleader and often got into conflicts with authority.[2] She formed a band, The Breeders, with her twin sister Kelley in her teenager years, and became a prolific songwriter: she said "it was easier to make up your own songs."

I got like a hundred songs when I was like 16, 17. I look at 'em and think, "Oh, you poor..." The music is pretty good, but the lyrics are just like, OH MY GOD. We were just trying to figure out how blues rhymes with you. When I was writing 'em, they didn't have anything to do with who I was.

Kim and Kelley bought microphones, an eight-track tape player, mixing boards, speakers and amps for a bedroom studio; according to Kelley, she and Kim "had the whole thing set up by the time we were 17." They later bought a drum machine "so it would feel like we were more in a band."[4]


Unlike her Pixies bandmates, Deal did not go to college. She met John Murphy, an Air Force defense contractor who had recently moved to Dayton, through her brother, Kevin; Murphy and Deal then started to date. Although Murphy was not a musician himself, he wrote the song "Hoverin'" with Kim.

Pixies

Audio samples of Pixies songs sung by Deal

Deal became a bassist and backing vocalist for the Pixies in January 1985, after answering an advertisement in the Boston Phoenix for a bassist who was into hardcore punk band Hüsker Dü and folk music icons Peter, Paul and Mary. Deal was the only person to respond and arrived at the audition without a bass guitar; she had never played the instrument before.[6][7] She claimed her twin sister Kelley Deal had a bass back in Dayton and that she had no money to get it. Thompson lent her $50 for the airfare and Deal returned with the bass guitar.[8] She joined lead guitarist Joey Santiago and frontman and guitarist Charles Thompson, who had formed the band a week earlier.[9] To complete the lineup, Murphy suggested they hire Dave Lovering, a friend of his, as drummer; Deal had already met Lovering at her wedding reception.[10][11] The Pixies[1] are an American alternative rock band formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1985. ...

For the release of the band's first recording Come on Pilgrim, Deal, whose day job was as a receptionist at a doctor's office, adopted the stage name "Mrs. John Murphy," following Thompson's choice of the name Black Francis. She chose the name as an ironic feminist joke, after conversing with a lady who wished to be called by her husband's name. Murphy was impressed, later saying: "I know she was doing it as a goof on feminism, but it made me proud."[12] Come on Pilgrim is the debut EP from the American alternative rock band Pixies, released on the British independent record label 4AD in October 1987. ...

For 1988's Surfer Rosa, Deal sung lead vocals on the album's only single, "Gigantic," cowritten by herself and Francis. It was one of her few songwriting contributions to the band. Doolittle followed a year later, with Deal contributing the song "Silver." By this time, however, tensions began to develop between her and Francis, with bickering and standoffs between the two marring the album's recording sessions; this led to increased stress between the band members.[13] Murphy commented that during the sessions, it "went from just all fun to work."[14] Exhaustion from touring and from releasing three records in two years contributed to the friction. This culminated at the end of the US "Fuck or Fight" tour, where they were too tired to attend the end-of-tour party. The band soon announced a hiatus.[15] Surfer Rosa is the Pixies first full-length album, released on March 21, 1988 by 4AD Records. ...

Main article: The Breeders

During the Pixies hiatus, Deal formed The Breeders, named after the folk band she formed with Kelley as a teenager. She initially formed the band in 1988 as a side-project with Throwing Muses' Tanya Donelly, but after their respective bands became less active, the two enlisted the help of drummer Mickey Bones, violinist Carrie Bradley and bassist Josephine Wiggs to record a demo. Their demo was sent to Ivo Watts-Russell, who immediately signed the band to 4AD. The Breeders allowed Deal to become more active in songwriting, and their debut album, Pod, containing mostly Deal-written songs, was recorded in Edinburgh, Scotland by Steve Albini and released in 1990.

Instrumentation

Kim's first bass guitar in the Pixies was an Aria Cardinal that belonged to Kelley and later reappeared in The Kelley Deal 6000. This bass was used on Come on Pilgrim EP and Surfer Rosa LP. For the recording of the Pixies' next album, Doolittle, producer Gil Norton insisted on getting a better-quality bass, so Deal acquired a Fender Precision. For Bossanova, she added a red Music Man StingRay as her main bass, only using the Precision to record "Dig for Fire".
